I work in research and implementation of public policies for social housing, deprived neighbourhoods and precarious  territories, linking it to school and university education projects with an interdisciplinary and active citizenship approach for the co-creation of neighborhoods.
I find it necessary and comfortable to work with people from other disciplines and backgrounds. That is why I have worked side by side with neighborhood leaders, philosophers, economists, sociologists, social workers, actors, geographers, and lawyers, among others.
